Cryptocurrency information about Slovenia
It is estimated that over 50 thousand people, 2.45% of Slovenia’s total population, currently own cryptocurrency.(1)
The awareness of blockchain technology among the citizens of Slovenia is relatively high. Most of the Slovenes have heard about bitcoin and several other cryptocurrencies. They utilize blockchain-based products available to them on numerous locations for several different purposes (e.g. spending, storage, exchange and trading of bitcoin, litecoin, ether and many other popular cryptocurrencies). But Slovenes are also aware of other use cases of blockchain technology, and they will soon have an opportunity to use it. Therefore, Slovenia should be on the radar of investors and business developers interested in these emerging technologies and their corresponding commercial opportunities.
In recent times, Slovenia has projected itself as a hotspot for blockchain and cryptocurrency-related activities. Today, Slovenia, which has an estimated population of 2 million, contains more physical locations accepting cryptocurrency payments than the entire United States. According to credible sources, more than 1,000 locations in the country now allow cryptocurrency payments, including cafes, restaurants, dentists, hair salons, and hotels. At the beginning of 2019, Slovenia was also the only country in the world where you could survive solely of cryptocurrencies.(2)
